Brief description H. pylori infection is the leading cause of gastric ulcer disease and stomach cancer. In light of emerging antibiotic resistance and failed vaccine trials, alternative therapies are needed to treat this lifelong infection. This project aims to develop tools to identify and characterize genes required by H. pylori for infection which will serve as new drug targets. This new knowledge will also contribute to a better understanding of the persistence of this and other bacteria.
